Dungeness - cool, sunny, SE 3 - Didn't have much time to spend in the field today, just a couple of hours at either end, but being as the wind was in a favourable direction seawatching was the obvious choice, and it may be the last hurrah for any Poms this spring. However, the short period I was on site proved to be slow going with just the usual terns, auks and Gannets, a few Kittiwakes, Fulmars and Whimbrels, plus two each of Red-throated Diver, Arctic and Great Skua. A few Pomarine Skuas were in the Channel today, although by the sound of it most sightings were distant and four passed the point this evening.
  The only other news of note today concerned two high flying Bee-eaters in off the sea heading north (OL).
